“Excellent, friendly hotel in beautiful Girona”
Reviewed 6 December 2011

December 2011 - I stayed here with my partner to photograph Girona (which is such a beautiful, colourful, safe place). She and I were both delighted with the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff. It's close to the train station so gets a lot of use from business travellers, but we really felt 'at home' here.

We asked for some information of what to see in Girona, and were given a lot of really valuable local knowledge, as well as maps and guides on the 'must sees'. We walked to the Cathedral from the hotel on Sunday, and found it to be majestic (and free). The Jewish 'Call' makes great pictures too.

Breakfast was good - LOADS of choice. Freshly squeezed orange juice, Iberian ham, a range of croissants and cakes, salads, fresh fruit and hot English breakfasts too. We enjoyed a Romantic dinner at the hotel in the restaurant. The food was delicious and the Catalan wine is worth going back for alone!

Also worth mentioning that the wifi is free, fast and with good coverage; and there's a computer available for you to use to - which was useful to check emails and look for local opening times. Our bed was comfortable, the hotel was quiet, and the little bottles of shampoo were good quality. I don't often write reviews for hotels, but I wanted to share my good experience.

I stayed again at the Melia Girona after 1 year 8 months and I may say that if I thought that all about this hotel is excellent, now it is even better.

Improving on excellence happens only when there is an ongoing effort from all involved to keep up the good work over the years and improving on it.

Excellent keep it up! Melia Girona best place to stay in Girona

Room Tip: Just behind the hotel there is a big hyper market....do not miss visiting it.

We spent 3 nights at the Melia Girona en route from France to Málaga. The hotel seemed organised for business visitors but as it was the end of August the hotel was quiet and very good value for the facilities. The staff were very helpful and tolerant of my Spanish (not always the case in Catalonia). The free wifi was welcome and very good reception throughout the hotel.

The location was not the hotels best feature. It was a good 30+ minutes walk out of town, just off a main road and backing onto the main railway line. The double glazing made sure that nothing was heard of the outside world but it wasn't "scenic".

This made eating in town a bit of a trek. However, we found a restaurant/bar about 150m towards town next to the park (Parc del Migdia). The Vadebrasa provided an excellent Menu del Noche of 3 courses + half a litre of house wine (each) at a reasonable price. The staff were even willing to convert the Catalan menu into Spanish/French/English. So good we ate there 2 nights running.

Parking provided by the hotel was extortionate at €14 a night but there was a parking area opposite the hotel that was free - if there was space as it is used by a block of flats and the customers at the nearby El Cortes Ingles store. Busiest times were between 5 and 8 every evening when it filled up with shoppers.

Room Tip: Spanish hotels still seem to allow smoking in rooms. If it bothers you insist on a non smoking room...

Excellent room providing a nice stay, complemented with a wide choice for breakfast.
Unfortunately it’s far from city centre but a walk could be interesting as the way is plan.

Where to start - staff spoke OK English, good enough to communicate with anyway. We were placed in room 315 the room was a mistake: the air conditioning didn't work properly and we were boiling in the room. The walls were dirty (yellow colour with a lot of dark, nearly black dirt on it), shower didn't work properly (the water came down extremely slow therefore at the point you stood in the water to your knees), there was no bed covers (only the sheet without anything on them to sit on or lay down in your clothes on), no prices for the mini bar - therefore not even attempted to use it and no information folder (one I got from another room was our of date - wrong prices, wrong TV cannals etc), finally the phone didn't work - whoever I tried to contact - reception, kitchen etc. - never worked. I had to go down each time.
The biggest disappointment however took us by surprise on leaving the hotel. As out flight back home was at 7:45, out airport transfer was at 5:25 - too early for the breakfast. As we did pay for the breakfast the day before I spoke to the reception and was promissed a take away / packed breakfast. Well... needless to say there was nothing waiting when we came down in the morning and the guy at the reception only offered us appologies because "the chef forgot to prepare your breakfast". Besides apologies nothing else was offered - discount on the restaurant bill added to the room, no offer to pay for the breakfast at the airport or even a refund of breakfast rate paid - absolutely nothing. Oups... apologies - the guy offered us some cheescake as this apparently was the only thing in the kitchen. We kindly refused.

The only good thing about this hotel however was its restaurant. Staff was very nice and the food was absolutely delicious. They have a set menu for the EUR 16.00 per person, the menu changes daily and has a starter, main dish, desert and either a glass of wine or mineral water. The food was indeed amazing and for this price there is no point in looking for anything else - it was brilliant!

Overall however - I would recomment to keep on searching for something else if you are planning to stay in Girona and surely just visit the restaurant when in the area.
